ISI Report

Senior School


Welcome from Salli Hall, Head of Prep School 

A warm welcome to all visitors. I hope you find the Kent College Prep School website a helpful resource and a good introduction to what is a truly wonderful school.

Kent College Prep is a very special place and it is a privilege to part of a school where children are at the heart of everything we do. I really do believe that happy children learn best, that great pastoral care underpins everything and that success is gained from the learning journey as much as the destination; from getting things wrong and acknowledging that the learning achieved through this process is powerful. Offering opportunity to children, who are inspired and willing to give their best, achieves great results and that is something we do brilliantly at KC Prep. Our Forest School provides a lovely bridge between formal and informal learning, equipping the children with the skills they need to face uncertainty and change with courage and confidence.

A Whole School Approach

We cater for pupils rising 3 to 11 years, with boys welcomed to the Nursery from 2020. The Prep School benefits tremendously from being part of a wider school. Many of the superb resources of the Senior School are at our disposal which means we can offer a broad and balanced curriculum with a huge variety of extra-curricular activities. From your child's first days we are keen to ensure that they and their families become part of the KC community and feel a real sense of belonging to the school as a whole.

ISI Inspection The findings of our ISI inspection reported that from the EYFS onwards, pupils' achievement is excellent and they attain high standards in their work. Academic standards here are high, opportunities for sports and the creative arts abound, and above all the well-being of our pupils is priority one. As a Growth Mindset School, my colleagues and I help children to understand that their intelligence is not fixed and when opportunity meets hard work and focused effort, the possibilities of what can be achieved are endless. We are mindful to teach our children that taking risks and making mistakes are an integral part of the process of learning.
